I can only speak for breakfast, which is always very good. I highly recommend the stuffed French toast. Coffee is also excellent.

Whether it is the cold, the rain, or the snow you will find me outside waiting to get into Melanie's for breakfast. I have yet to have anything on the menu that was not exceptional. The environment, while a little cramped, is very cozy and service is always kind and lively.

We had a bit of a wait for breakfast, but that was okay as we went and did some shopping at the many nearby shops. Once seated our order came fairly quickly and everything was delicious. I would definitely come again on our next trip to Boone.

I've enjoyed Melanie's for brunch and lunches but dinner ? YES ! They aren't open every night, but it seems to be a secret that they are open at all. Usually, finding a weekend spot for dinner at last minute means a possible wait.....not here for some strange reason. Melanie's promises (and delivers) locally sourced produce and meats, all either... More

We waited in the rain for 25 minutes but it was worth it. Ran into some folks who travel from Winston Salem just for Sunday breakfast! Great home fries, good coffee. Try the truckers breakfast if you are hungry. Only negative I can give is we were given the table next to the front door and the door doesn't have... More

This place always provides great service. I go here for Sunday Brunch a lot. The food is high quality but fairly inexpensive for how delicious it all is. I went to school at Appalachian State and I didn't start going here until I graduated, which is sad! This is my go to breakfast place. I recommend the Melanie's Big Breakfast... More

Melanie's is a tradition in downtown Boone serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week. We source all of our bread, eggs and burgers locally as well as other items when we can. We have an eclectic and creative menu serving food made from scratch. We are sensitive to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners. Now open evening hours with a new small plate menu, Booneshine beer on draft and wine by the glass. Come see us Thur-Sat evenings and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat on our beautiful deck while you watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Boone.
